I got an interesting email yesterday. Someone in Iran plans to translate some of my writings into Farsi -- presumably for circulation in Iran. The young people over there are a feisty lot. The Iranians now appears to be the most pro-Western population in the Middle East (Israel excepted, of course). They have had a gutful of the Ayatollahs. Note: "The grandson of the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini has condemned his country's clerical regime and suggested military intervention by the United States as a possible path to liberation".

I understand that some of my writings have also been translated into Russian -- for the benefit of Russian-origin Israelis -- who are generally a conservative lot. They KNOW what real socialism is like.

Abortion: Kudos to Australian Catholics. I have been advocating this sort of thing for years and GWB advocated it in the Presidential debates too: "One of the last announcements Cardinal George Pell made before taking his annual leave this week was to introduce a program, new to Australia and only the third of its kind in the world, to provide support to pregnant women who are contemplating abortion. "We want to respond to the needs of women facing an unexpected or difficult pregnancy by providing them with life-affirming options," he said. "Through the program, expectant mothers and, if required, their families, will be provided with social, emotional and practical support to enable them to continue with their pregnancy to full term. Women need real alternatives to abortion, and this new program is targeted to meet the specific needs of women contemplating abortion."

If there is anybody who is by now not totally fed up with the U.N., this post about the "Toyota Taliban" should settle the matter. It might even put one or two Leftists off the U.N.

How much will reach the victims? "The United Nations has received a record $US1.5 billion ($1.93 billion) in one week in donations after the devastating tidal waves in the Indian Ocean, a UN official said".

It looks like Al Capone's dictum of "vote early and vote often" is the reason the Democrat finally got over the line in the Washington State Governor's race.

There have been a fair few comments recently about the death of Susan Sontag. I have said nothing so far because I think the stupid old bitch's own words about the white race being "the cancer of human history" condemn her more effectively than anything I could say. No doubt she also said that races don't exist.

Betsy Newmark has been doing well. She deserves the kudos. I like her choice of template too, though the colours could be improved. The Newmarks are a whole family of bloggers, of course. Betsy has an excellent post here about how the media ignore successful conservative blacks while constantly pushing Leftist ones.

Wayne Lusvardi looks at the Leftist claim that the war in Iraq is "unconstitutional".

The Policeman is still one of the funniest blogs on the net. You have to "get" dry British humour, though.

The latest posting on my MarxWords blog shows that Engels despised both liberty and democracy.

That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.
